We both have worked in the restaurant business. We were disappointed by the service, but the food was outstanding. Management needs to become a lot more aware of the servers they have on the floor and start training appropriately.

Date Night with the Misses. I highly recommend stopping here whether you’re on Vacation, or just in the mood for a nice quiet atmosphere for a delicious meal. I suggest you try the in-house made Meatloaf.
The French Onion soup is a little heavy on Saltiness, But perfect if you’re a cheese-lover.

Perhaps greater expectations than was realistic. A "subdued" server who really did not show much enthusiasm for the service nor the food. Nothing bad about the food, but it just seemed so unimpressive. Good, even very good, but surely not great. Dined with five others and there was general consensus...a good choice, but not anything that put it over the top. Not a 'knock your socks off' dining event. Was surprised at the pricing. My sense was it was a bit over-priced for value received. Certainly a pleasant night.

It's been some time since we have had dinner here. After a couple years we decided to get it a try again and I must say Christopher has turned it around! Our dinner and service, both in the restaurant and the bar area was exceptional! What a wonderful time-thank you!

Outstanding, creative menu. The chef Chris has innovative creations at this hotel dining area. There are nightly specials at very reasonable prices. The evening we dined I had Ahi Tuna that was superb.

Our server Libby was fantastic. She didn’t rush us and made us feel so warm and welcome. And compliments to the chef. The food was fabulous! We started with the licious Grey Goose martinis. Split a wedge salad. Split filet mignon and crabcakes. Delicious

Crab cakes were a little undercooked but all crabmeat. Carpaccio was not that great. My husbands grouper very nice. Key lime pie excellent. A very slow time in key west so not that many dining. Drinks are very good. Amy was excellent. The Randy Robertson show afterward was wonderful! Beautiful if you can sit outside. Just very hot.

Personality PLUS is the best way to describe it. Romantic, energetic and amazing all wrapped up in one spot! I can’t say enough great things about it! Food was amazing, service was top notch and impeccably clean!
If you are a martini fan.... they all come with a side car so you don’t have to drink a warm martini!

Filet over cooked and they apologize but since I had 2 bites I assumed they would offer me something different or something. I assumed wrong. My spouse's yellowtail was dry also but didn't bother for another apology. Disappointed

Beautiful. Perfect for what we were in the mood for! Delicious food, great service, great music. The bartender was accommodating and nice to talk to. Great spot to have a relaxing night with drinks, food,& music. Stayed dry in the storm too! Perfect for our last night in Key West. My husband & I said it was just what we needed! Thank you!

Great service and beautiful facility. I had the shrimp scampi dish and found the shrimp a little tough and not too flavorful. The roasted tomatoes were not fresh.

I have lived in Key West for many years and so know LaTeDa for many years. The ambience is always lovely as is the service. However, the quality of the restaurant food has deteriorated. The new owner is a fine man who does much good in the community and who has had other quality restaurants in town but someone has to tell him the food at LaTeDa is no longer acceptable in quality and preparation. The wedge salad is literally drenched in highly salty cheese dressing - very unpalatable. Chicken breast was dry as a bone. Meatloaf was 75% breadcrumbs. Mashed potatoes hard as a rock. Be smart. Go for the bar, go for the entertainment at LaTeDa but stay away from the restaurant.

The food was excellent and the server was very friendly. Just as we were finishing dinner live entertainment was provided by a wonderful trio of singers. The ambiance and entertainment was almost nostalgic in a way and beyond what we were expecting.
